Free after school drama clubs (for young people in years 7-8)
These targeted groups act as an early intervention for vulnerable young people and use drama to build confidence, make friends and creatively engage with their peers. Each term the young people explore topics which are relevant to them and create a sharing which families and friends are invited to watch in an informal setting. The clubs run in the following locations:
- Monday: Harford Centre, 115 Harford Street, E1 4FG, 4.30pm – 6.30pm
